Unico Zelo Pollen Gewurztraminer 2023
From Red clay shale over blue slate soils in the Clare Valley. You’d be forgiven for not knowing the origins of Gewürztraminer; a German name, mostly grown in the Alsace, but it’s believed home is the town of Tramin, in the Northern Italian region of Alto-Adige (which has strong historical German ties and it is the most spoken language). We’re always fond of Northern Italian varieties, and Gewürz is no exception. We’ve been working with this plot in Polish Hill River, Clare Valley since 2020 – most notably in Esoterico – and it is a remarkable mirrored climate to its home. Similar rainfall, 600mm annually, altitude, 520m above sea level, distance from the ocean, give or take around 30kms, growing season temps. It’s right in our breadbasket.
